Anyone remember the fork offset that came stock on old Cannondale track bikes?

TIA!

If you're willing to settle for a "best of my recollection" answer, those Tange forks had an
offset ~32mm.

Thanks! That seems about right.

I've got a buckled one, and I'm looking for inexpensive options. I'm considering having Tom Teesdale
braze me up one. He advertises around $175 painted (it'd be basic black).

Any other options I should consider?

Well, there's red. Or blue; and yellow's always popular.

Oh... you mean *fork* options. Nah - short of finding an original Tange track fork, having a
framebuilder replicate your current fork's blade length (crown race seat to axle) and offset (as it
was before you crashed it to smithereens) for you is your best bet.

If you want to go high zoot, I hear rumors that Reynolds is about to do a run of 30-something rake
track forks...

Definitely red. Everyone knows a red fork is faster!
